does Google allow "PageRank For Sale" ads ?

I thought Google frowned on this, yet they accept these ads

I'm confused. About 18 months ago, Google considered it high treason to openly sell PageRank. Now I see ads fed from Google in the Washington Post that explicitly advertise PageRank for sale. Here's a screen <snip> shot[/url].

Is it okay to sell PageRank now?

It is very clear, if you have decent PR, (or qualified traffic), don't leak it to an unrelated theme, simple.

If your 'selling PR' it is ok provided it is on-topic and of reciprical benefit.

There is no magical rule, only common sense. People build links all the time, just make sure it is on-topic and sell your traffic all you want.

<QUOTE>Since PageRank is only a measure of how many sites link to you, and has nothing to do with search results, who cares? People pay way too much attention to that little green bar.</QUOTE>

Yeah, the same people are yet to work out that there are no shortcuts, and when you find one you are headed in the wrong direction.

Work hard > across the board, not in one area. PageSpank will catch you up eventually. Trick is to forget about it! easy to say...

If PageRank has nothing to do with the SERP ranking of a site why does Google still go to the trouble of implementing PR 0 penalties?

That's funny, a few sites that I just looked at that claimed to be able to raise your PR actually had either very low or zero PR themselves!
